a tree falls victim to drunken office chair riding

there will be a photo filled post of the Invasion of the Tourists alleycat very soon! There would have been one today, but an unexpected ride last night with new friends put the kabosh on that, but stay tuned! there’s lots of great pics and of course the announcement of the fastest person in key west!

and now a short rant about irresponsible office chair riding:

Sights like this are sobering and scary. Drunk kids, maybe all hopped up on meth or coffee (or both!) joyriding and endangering the citizens and trees of our quaint and quiet little island. I really hope nobody was injured and the tree will continue to grow and be healthy. I also hope enough people saw this carnage to help others from making the same mistakes.

Pollard caught a shot of the same mess in the daylight and emailed it to me with the subject, “Seating apparatus violence up in the Keys‏.” It is frightening to think about how many people could have been crushed under that massive branch as it fell from the traumatic impact of the office chair.

do office chairs belong in bike racks?

So yeah, sometimes you don’t want to walk to the bar. Obviously (i hope) driving isn’t an option. I suppose for some reason you may choose not to ride. And, every once in a while, i am sure we all will ask a friend to push us to the bar in an office chair. It happens.

But once there, what is the etiquette for the storage of the chair? Most office chairs are too low to sit at a bar. Leaving it against a wall like a longboard just seems like a bad idea. So, seems logical one would most likely decide to just lock it up outside? But is the bike rack the correct place?
Shit! I don’t know. But i want my non-fossil fuel burning self propelled brothers and sisters to know, i welcome you to lock your ride next to mine. Bicycles are transportation. And now, office chairs are transportation. Ride on!
